    I've been using size 3 snaps on many of my outfits, but I still use buttons on others. It often depends on how the outfit fits. I've also crocheted ties by joining yarn to the edge of the outfit and chaining a length significantly long enough to make a tie and bow, repeating on other side. I've mostly done this with the baby clothes but I have on occasion done it the the 18" clothes as well. I'm not great working with ribbon so that is generally why I haven't used it. I'm also not sure how well it stands up to continuous usage. As for skirt length since I don't know who will be getting the dolls I tend to lean on the side of modesty and try to get them over the mini skirt length even if I have to add rows. Some parents might not care, but I'd hate to have a parent decide a child couldn't play with an outfit because they thought it wasn't appropriate because the length was too short. That's just my thinking. When you know the intended audience and they aren't as concerned then it isn't as big a deal.

    You guys are doing great. I modify and adjust all the time to make stuff fit. My crochet doesn't seem to work the same as some of the pattern writers and therefore I find adjustments are required in some cases. I try to make notes on my blog because I know I can go back there myself and I figure it gives people something to try if they can't make the original pattern work too. My poor girls are constantly without clothes or partially clothed as I'm working on a new outfit. Modesty sadly has long since left them. It makes it quicker to try on stuff as I'm working on an outfit.

    If you lay it flat and it doesn't meet my go to fix is to sc along the edge of both borders. It also makes it easier to see buttons as the sc are more solid. Also are you planning for this shirt to be worn over the dress? That can make a difference as well.

    Crochet Barn and Finger Puppets
  15. I finished my Valentine's package and DH got it mailed out just in time last week. I settled on a farm theme with finger puppets for the animals. I'm skipping St. Patrick's Day and moving on to Easter this year as she has a cousin that was born in December and I'd like to make something for him for Easter. I can't do both of them for Easter and get St. Patrick's Day in too. There are only so many hours in the day. I'm not as close to the other family so I thought perhaps just Easter, Birthday, and Christmas. Crochet Barn and Farm Animal Finger Puppets
